    In Short-What will you learn?

    Mindfulness can’t be learnt by just talking or reading about it. Mindfulness is experiential. To be able to teach mindfulness you need to understand how it works from the inside out. Teaching mindfulness is about guiding people to their own mindfulness practice. It’s about co-creating an environment where mindfulness can ‘happen’. In this ‘safe space’ everyone has the ability to come into a deeper contact with who they really are by continually being offered the possibility of surrendering to the present moment, exactly as it is, without an agenda or expected outcome.

    During the two days we will be looking carefully at the basic neuroscience; how purposefully connecting with the body’s self-calming para-sympathetic nervous system leads to- lower stress and anxiety, increased attention and mental clarity, improved social and emotional intelligence and a host of other life-enhancing benefits.

    In this course you will learn, as the teacher/guide, how to use language, your voice, authority and authenticity to create an environment, where a deep trust between participants naturally arises as well as a sense of freedom and safety.
    To guide mindfulness is like nothing else, it is not teaching in a traditional sense, it is not therapy. It is more like ‘decluttering’ the over-filled, busy mind.

    By establishing your own Mindfulness practice and the fundamental understanding of how mindfulness works from a more scientific point of view, you will build the foundation needed to effectively guide others on to their own mindfulness journey.

    Benefits such as:

    • Decreased stress and anxiety
    • Better sleep
    • Better self-management
    • Less reactivity
    • Improved mental resilience
    • Increased self-awareness
    • Better memory
    • Increased attention and focus
    • Better conflict resolution skills

    are all common and expectable result from regular Mindfulness practice.

    Become a Facilitator

    This training will give you a resource to improve everyone’s ability to deal with stress and anxiety as well as improve attention and focus and cultivate kindness and empathy. After the training you receive a facilitation pack with manuals, ready to use lesson plans, white papers, posters, articles and tools to use when you run your own mindfulness sessions.

    It doesn’t matter if you never have meditated or done one Mindfulness exercise in your life, this course is for anyone who are moved to establish their own Mindfulness practice and get the tools and resources to help others to improve focus, mental resilience and impulse control.

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF MINDFULNESS?


    Mindfulness is a natural state of being human yet in our increasingly distracting
    and fragmented world we now ‘teach’ mindfulness to re-empower
    people with their own natural ability to restore the fragmented mind
    to a state of wholeness and presence and to come in contact with the
    calmness and stillness beneath the often, over-burdened mind.



    I had the pleasure of studying with Mindfulness in Australia and completed their 8 weeks Mindfulness Facilitator Training certification including the 2 day live workshop.
    Having studied several mindfulness courses I was looking for something more comprehensive, I must say this was the best training I have done this far. The course content was clear, concise and leading edge. Rita as a facilitator is approachable and knowledgeable. The sheer amount of resources provided with the course sets you up for success and has been a huge asset to my business”.

    STOP NEGATIVE SELF-TALK


    It’s taken a long time to become the person you are with all the usual flaws and conditioned behaviours and reactions, but, please be easy with yourself.

    Negative thoughts are toxic. What worse is is that those, especially, self-critical thoughts of not being good enough, not measuring up etc. mostly goes on ‘under the radar’ where we don’t recognise them. They are like an invisible automatic response in the brain that get triggered in different situations. When this negative self-talk goes on undetected it can bring about low self-esteem, feelings of ‘being a failure’. Over time, those habitual negative thoughts can lead to emotional distress, anxiety and depression.

    Opposite to everything the world tries to tell us, we don’t need to add anything to ourselves. We are whole and complete as we are. For too long, we have been conditioned to believe we are less than whole and need to add something to be better.

    With Mindfulness training you are not adding to your knowledge in the traditional sense – you are in fact removing some of the mental clutter that is holding you back from being naturally mindful and in a state of equilibrium.

    Through these easy-to-do practises you will train the mind to be more present in the moment. resulting in it to be less anxious, more alert and alive.

    When you have had enough unhappiness and begin to recognise it’s our thoughts and often an inability to accept life, as it is, that causes so much unnecessary suffering, our thoughts, especially the negative ones, are the root cause of suffering.

    When we put the spotlight of awareness on thoughts and patterns of reactivity and recognise that we have a choice of where we put our attention as well as knowing we can shift attention, especially when trapped in negative self-talk, this becomes the doorway to inner freedom.

    WHAT IS POSSIBLE WITH THIS TRAINING?

    Whether you just want to be more present in your own daily life and maybe share these techniques with the people closest to you, which is wonderful, or you are looking at starting a new career, both these options are possible with this training. There are innumerable applications of the material and knowledge you receive from this course, you will be able to create your own program to run, for example:

    » One-to-one sessions to reduce stress and anxiety for your existing or new clients
    » A wellness strategy in the workplace for both staff and management
    » Daily short sessions to improve attention and focus in the classroom for students of all ages
    » Group sessions to help improve wellbeing in nursing homes or mental health facilities
    » Teenage groups for better self awareness and emotional regulation
    » Public mindfulness classes for general relaxation and wellbeing
    » Emotional intelligence programs for children at home or in preschool
    and much more.

    What’s possible with regular mindfulness practice is living a life of purpose as well as experiencing life more vibrantly. With this training you are able to share this with others as well.

    Why Mindfulness?


    Evidence based results from around the world continue to show that the regular practise of Mindfulness has ongoing benefits for physical and mental health. Research over the past few decades has found that Mindfulness training helps to;

    Placeholder

    Relieve Anxiety & Stress


    In our fast paced lives, where we rush from one demand to another, there is very little time or space to stop and pause. Mindfulness offer the tools needed to connect with our inner intelligence, where we can access natural calmness beneath the busy minds.


    Placeholder

    Let go of Anger & Frustration


    Coming in contact with your direct experience in the mindful state allows us to become familiar with the patterns that direct our lives; our thoughts, emotions and reactions.


    Placeholder

    OVERCOME WORRYING
    & NEGATIVE THINKING


    Pain is an inevitable part of being human but suffering is optional. In Mindfulness we learn how to manage our thoughts and emotions instead of letting emotions and thoughts manage us.


    Placeholder

    STOP INNER CHATTER


    Aimless thinking and inner chatter is draining our energy and clouding over the present moment. One of the most common benefits from regular Mindfulness training is greater mental clarity and a new sense of inner peace.


    Placeholder

    Have Better Sleep


    To be able stop incessant thinking and worrying is one of the great benefits of Mindfulness and it makes it easier to sleep in and have unbroken sleep throughout the night.


    Placeholder

    STOP LIVING IN THE PAST


    Mindfulness practices increasingly bring you more into the present with the growing awareness that going over the past keeps you stuck in the past.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn. (Founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction)

    Mindfulness is a way of noticing where your attention is in the present moment without judging it good or bad. It’s about not wandering off into an imagined future or going over the past but fully engaging right here right now.

    The ability to focus on one thing at a time is a skill and requires practice. Just as athletes train on a daily basis to maintain fitness and stamina, Mindfulness, which is a mental training, requires regular daily practice to experience the many well documented benefits especially of de-stressing, relaxing the body and generally self-managing in a new and empowering way.

    Through guided, simple easy-to-do practisies you are training the mind to be more present in the moment. resulting in it to be less anxious, more alert and alive.

    Everyone really and especially anyone

    • Who over-thinks
    • Thinks anxiously as a regular behavior.
    • Stressed people
    • People who engage in constant negative self-talk
    • People who can’t sleep because of incessant inner chatter
    • People who operate on ‘auto-pilot’ and are always ‘on’..
    Current research tells us 20 minutes a day is required to achieve lasting benefits. This can be broken into two 10 minutes sessions-easily do-able when you experience the inner calm and rest from the robotic mind.
    You will slowly (sometimes quickly) begin to experience a lightness of being, less anxiety, better sleep, easier communications and a general improved sense of well-being and have more energy. These are not empty promises but almost guaranteed if you follow the instructions, do the practices regularly and begin to live more Mindfully.
    Yes, you get a certificate after completing the 2 days training and the 8 week online component which is a 8 week self-paced course to establish your own practice.
    Meditation and Mindfulness are very similar the only difference being that Meditation takes many more forms;chanting, mantras as well as breathing and visualisations however Mindfulness meditation is a specific set of exercises that focus exclusively on the five senses.
    Many places that run Mindfulness courses do so on a donation basis and are connected to spiritual centers. Mindfulness in New Zealand is an independent group and the trainers pay to live just like everyone else. Everybody needs to be paid for their effort as well as the cost of hiring venues and paying advertising to let people know the courses exist.
    The 2 day course is an immersion into mindfulness facilitation, covering all ground; science behind it, practices, methods, tools and resources. It gives you a strong foundation and also ongoing support afterwards and many of the attendants start implementing these techniques in their profession directly after the course. With that said, in the end, it is your regular practice and self enquiry together with you own communication and coaching skills that leads to the ability to facilitate effectively. 
    No, the course is for teaching everyone, adults, children, teenagers, although it has grown out of working with students.
    Yes, it is accredited with IMMA (International’s Meditation and Mindfulness Alliance)
